It is a beautiful morning here, about 60 degrees and sunny. I am sitting in front of the open back door, watching and listening to the birds. My main computer became seriously infected with a trojan this week so I have been unable to read the blogs I usually read first thing in the morning. But I have also spent hours working on my laptop, trying to get it back into service, saving photos and documents in case we have to reformat the hard-drive, a prospect that is looking ever more likely.
I have seen the male Goldfinch only twice before today but he and the female were both very active at the feeder this morning. Yet I could not get a picture of him. They both blend in with the backside of the leaves and are hard to find. PRM
